ISIS is Winning The War On Terror and Obama is at Fault, Say Most Americans

ISIS is Winning The War On Terror and Obama is at Fault, Say Most Americans

Americans believe more than ever that the terrorists are winning the war on terror. With Obama at the helm of this country, they may just be right:


In a new CNN/ORC poll, just 18 percent of Americans surveyed said the U.S. and its allies were ahead in the terror fight, with 40 percent now saying the terrorists have the upper hand.

The numbers are almost completely flopped from when the question was first asked, just one month after the 9/11 terror attacks.

Then, 42 percent said the U.S. was winning the war on terror, while 11 percent said the terrorists were dominating the fight.

Those numbers have bobbed up and down through the years, but this latest poll showed the most dramatic spike in public opinion, as Americans have grown increasingly concerned about ISIS in light of the attacks in San Bernardino, California and Paris, France.

Reinforcing that point, 74 percent of survey respondents said they were not too satisfied or not satisfied at all with the way things were going for the U.S. in the ongoing war on terror.

The last high water mark for that question was 61 percent, which was recorded in August of 2007, according to CNN.
When the question was last asked to the American public, in August 2008, just months before President Obama was elected, the largest group of respondents said they were somewhat satisfied with how the war on terror was going.

Now the largest chunk of Americans says they’re not at all satisfied with the way things are going as the country deals with this threat.

The survey was conducted between Dec. 17-21, several weeks after an ISIS-aligned couple slaughtered 14 people at a holiday party in California.

The margin of error for the entire survey is plus or minus 3 percent.

Just scary business, folks. I can’t wait to get Obama out of office and anyone but Shrillary to replace him.
